Our Responsibility For The Wild

In every office, there are different kinds of leaders. The best leaders are the ones who lead by example, who take full responsibility for their behaviour and their people. When there’s a problem, it belongs to the leader, even if they didn’t make the mistake or cause the problem themselves. They just believe that it’s …
